Seattle Fishing Economics Survey

The Port of Seattle has set a goal to double the economic value of Seattle's fishing and maritime industry over the next 10 years. The Port has hired Madison Bay Commercial to help determine how the Fishermen's Terminal facility could contribute to achieving this important goal.

Madison Bay will conduct a brief survey of vessel owners and supporting fishing industry companies to help identify ways Fishermen's Terminal can continue to support the North Pacific fishing fleet and Seattle's seafood industry over the long term. Survey participants will be registered to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards, and responses will be aggregated to protect anonymity.

"Since 1989, the Port has invested over $60 Million in the overall infrastructure of the terminal,” says Kenny Lyles, Senior Manager of Fishermen's Terminal and the Maritime Industrial Center. “We continue to make improvements – large and small – to the terminal on a day-in and day-out basis. As the Home Port to the North Pacific Fishing Fleet, we also need to look ahead to the future, and make sure this facility continues to serve our existing customers and attract new fishing and maritime businesses over the long term."

Phil Hingston, a certified public accountant with Hingston Fletcher & Associates, says, "A lot has changed around us in my 30 years at Fishermen's Terminal, and thankfully, this is still our home. The effort by Madison Bay Commercial tells me that the Port remains committed to our long-term success.”
